Broken Lines Weekly News Blast 2



Hello everyone and welcome back to our second weekly news blast from Broken Lines. In this edition we are going to continue with our 'Know your Squad' segment, help you find us at Gamescom, and share some of the fun that we have when developing the game.

So without further ado, let's begin!

Know your Squad
Last week we introduced Avery, the hot-headed Scotsman, giving you vital information to the character’s back story, and how you can expect him to act in the game.

This week, we’ve got a (sort of) new character to introduce - Conner.
We say sort of because Conner featured in our teaser trailer,so many of you would have already got to know her.



Even on her good days, most people tend to keep their distance from her, but considering that she thinks that people just get in the way, that suits her just fine!

If you want the full story behind Conner, check out the teaser trailer.

Gamescom

Will you be attending Gamescom 2019? We sure will be! Head on over to the Indie Corner in hall 10.2 to meet us, get some awesome swag and try out the game!

Game Development Fun

One of the funniest parts of developing a game is when you finally finish a new feature and test it out for the first time.

Why is that you ask? Because it is almost always going to have a few unforeseen bugs that can be pretty funny to see (and frustrating to fix).

Take this, for example, the characters all moved ok, but their leg positions were entirely wrong!



Other times, the issues would only trigger with specific interactions. Like in this example, the soldier’s model was ok in normal play, but when he got damaged by one of the player’s characters, he would suddenly transform into what could only be described as an opera singer!

Those are but a few fun stories from the world of Broken Lines development. If you found them to be interesting, we recommend that you follow our various Social Media channels:

Broken Lines Summer News Blast!



Though the summer holidays are now upon us, we’re still working away at Broken Lines, and so we thought it would be a cool idea to give you all a feel of what working on Broken Lines is like!

Know your Squad

The experience that you get out of playing Broken Lines heavily depends on how you manage the squad and what choices you make. What is also vital to your success is knowing the characteristics of the squad members, so to help you out, we have begun introducing the squad members with more detail about their personality.

This week, we started off with Avery.



Avery is a hot-headed Scotsman who is quick to make decisions but is also terrible at dealing with the consequences if something goes wrong.

Tips from the Game

Finally, we’ve got some screenshots from the game itself. Some of you may be beta testers, but for those of you that are not, we think you’ll be happy to see these screenshots. After all, not only do these images show you what the game will look like, but they also have vital tips about the mechanics found in Broken Lines.


Tip 1: You cannot shoot through your allies, make sure that each squad member has a clear line of sight!


Tip 2: Grenades have an area of effect. If used well they can be devastating against the enemy. But always be careful, grenades will harm your squad members if they are in the blast range.

Reviews

“I was lucky enough to try this original tactical turn-based game set in Eastern Europe during World War II, full of style, roguelike elements and a compelling story inspired by titles like Frozen Synapse, X-Com and Banner Saga.”
Turn Based Lovers

“Between its decision-led story and the clever way of managing tactical decisions, Broken Lines definitely remains one to watch for fans of the squad strategy genre.”

About This Game


The squad has crash-landed behind enemy lines, in the heart of Eastern Europe. With no officers, no leaders, and no intel, they must find an unbreakable resolve if they are to survive.
But with only their training and instincts to guide them, survival becomes a difficult goal. First of all, they need to learn to work together to have any hope of coping with the challenges ahead.
Each survivor has their own views on what to do, and their own principles on what is acceptable. Some want to investigate what caused their crash, others wants to stay low and avoid detection by the enemy. There are even whispers of desertion.
It is your task to be the unseeing hand that will guide this ragtag group of soldiers through their struggles. Make your decisions wisely, for they will have real consequences on the fates of the survivors.

  • Tactical RPG with diverse characters. Experience the story through the eyes of each soldier as they fight for survival in an alternative WW2 setting.
  • Turn-based planning with simultaneous execution (WeGo turn-based gameplay)
  • Authentic tactical choices: suppression, destructible cover, realistic ballistics, and camouflage are at your disposal.
  • Rogue-like campaign structured with different narrative paths, resources, and permadeath.
  • A challenge for even the most experienced gamer. A far-reaching morale system means that the soldiers may desert at any moment if you prove to be incompetent.
  • An emotional story, tense atmosphere, and multiple endings based on the decisions that you make.

“Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may
be; for without victory, there is no survival.”

― Winston Churchill
